Abstract

As the law currently stands, domestic violence shelters are not included in the definition of a dwelling in Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 and, therefore, these shelters can turn away any protected class. This Comment argues domestic violence shelters must be considered a dwelling within Title VIII before a 2010 amendment to the Illinois Human Rights Act, adding order of protection status as a protected class, can be effective.
